Overview

Humber’s Bachelor of Journalism degree program provides you with the knowledge, skills and abilities required for in-depth work as a journalist in a multi-platform digital environment. In addition to the traditional skills of researching, reporting and interviewing, you will learn how to bring together audio, text and video in a web-based environment to create compelling stories. Throughout the program, you will learn how to manage web-based content for both websites and handheld devices while incorporating social media into your work.

You will study both the theoretical and practical aspects of journalism using the latest equipment in a newsroom in Humber’s Lakeshore Commons building. You will have access to industry-standard software and hardware and will be taught by instructors who will bring their industry experience into the classroom. At the same time, an emphasis will be placed on examining the history of journalism and the role of the journalist in society. You will also enhance and expand your knowledge through general education electives.

This program has been designed with input from journalists and media professionals to ensure the curriculum is current and provides the skills necessary for employment.

Work Placement

You will complete a 14-week work placement in the summer between years three and four. This placement provides an opportunity to gain experience in your chosen field and to meet professionals in journalism and digital communications settings. Many of the placements are offered in the Greater Toronto Area, a hub for Canada’s media industry. The work settings and the work itself support your professional development and will provide you with both the knowledge and skills required to enter the profession, as well as the confidence to perform the work required.

Career opportunities

Technology, the Internet and social media have forever changed how information is created and shared. In the digital age, journalists have far more reach than ever before, as news organizations experiment with innovative ways to tell stories and shape opinions using a range of media across multiple platforms. Our program puts you on the inside track to this challenging and fastpaced profession.

When you graduate, you will be ready to experience the thrill of reporting on important local, national and international news, as well as sports, entertainment and lifestyle stories with the reward of keeping audiences up-to-date with informative, compelling stories. You will reflect the world back to audiences across today’s multimedia spectrum where information can be accessed through print, broadcast, the web and mobile media. Reporting live from the scene of breaking news, you will learn to craft informative stories about current affairs and put issues and trends into context with insightful analysis.

In addition to journalism, you will have the skills to pursue a career as a web content producer, media relations manager, editor, communications specialist and researcher, as well as a variety of positions relating to digital media production.
